Encompass Blue for Hotels

Like office buildings, hotels are also notably complex in subsystems and services that need monitoring and control. However, the added factor of complexity is that, unlike office buildings where occupants are temporary visitors, hotels run 24/7. This round-the-clock occupancy if not planned well can severely deplete resources and generate high energy and maintenance bills. Additionally, indoor air quality and comfort levels need to be consistently excellent to provide an overall great experience for the occupants and great reviews for the hotel.


The hospitality sector is one of the biggest in the world and is also arguably one of the worst-hit by COVID-19. However, with the resurgence of hotels comes the growing urgency of elevating health, wellness, safety, and air quality management. Post-COVID protocols have increased the challenges faced in handling system uncertainties and technical challenges in retrofit projects along with new Greenfield projects.


Blue IoT’s sustainable building retrofit solution offers a cost-effective, short-payback program with minimal interruptions. It provides enhanced energy performance without compromising on excellent service levels and indoor thermal comfort levels within operating constraints. Blue IoT’s ‘Encompass Blue’ delivers the optimum solution for hotels, providing IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) monitoring and airflow & filter management amongst others to ensure paramount health & wellness for hotel occupants.
